Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : February 21, 2007

Determination of progression free survival after 12 months of FU
Determination of total survival, response and quality of life
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Ovarian Cancer||Drug: Topotecan||Phase 3|
In Germany there are two established therapy regimes for platin sensitive ovarian cancer: the combination of carboplatin and paclitaxel as well as the combination of carboplatin with gemcitabine. Choice of therapy is individual due to missing randomized comparisons between the regimes. Topotecan has shown good efficacy in second-line therapy of ovarian cancer as well as a good, especially, non-hematoxic toxicity profile. Several phase II-studies have demonstrated a synergistic effect of topotecan in combination with carboplatin exhibiting good efficacy and tolerability.
It shall be tested in this randomized phase III-study if the combination of topotecan and carboplatin shows improvement of progression-free survival in comparison to the standard regimes.
